The business and political leaders gathered in Libreville at the end of August 2015 to engage in intense, collaborative sessions to draw up a road map – for individual businesses as well as national policy-makers – as a spur to action. The New York Forum AFRICA 2015 built on the previous years’ discussions to focus on the concrete measures that will be needed to drive Africa’s transformation in its next stage of development.
THE NEW YORK FORUM AFRICA WAS THE ONLY PAN-AFRICAN BUSINESS SUMMIT TO BE HELD IN AFRICA IN 2015.
The African Start-Up Award was developed by the New York Forum Institute in partnership with France 24 and Le Point to support talent and the most creative initiatives, particularly those with a social impact component. A total grant of € 100,000 Euros was awarded to the top four African Start-Ups by The New York Forum Institute and split between four laureates.
We are excited to have been named in this forum as one of Africa’s Most Innovative Start-ups that are using innovation and entrepreneurial skills to solve societal problems and challenges. This goes a long way to reinforce our mission and vision for African farmers. This recognition continues to encourage us to forge forward and impact the lives of the African farmer.
